by Beu Sisters



Despite a relatively shallow production and a rhythm track that's less intrusive and intense than one expects from this genre, the Beu Sisters' debut leaves an agreeable aftertaste. Where your typical femme pop icon pummels her songs with suggestive groans and ersatz gospel affectations, these young ladies take a lighter, more airy approach; their harmonies float like feathers, unruffled by vibrato, behind guileless lead vocals. The issues they address seem drawn from a time when teens suffered a more innocent kind of angst: Concerns such as those raised in "Decisions" ("Do I want to go from being somebody's daughter to somebody's wife?") seem quaint in an era of bondage videos and crotch-grab choreography. Yet there's a sense throughout this album that real-life kids might identify more with the Beu brood than to the humanoid Olympians of big-time pop -- which, like the confectionary sound of of Decisions, isn't so bad at all.
